Art sparks the brains of children. In fact, it improves their mental health. Studies show, kids who participate in art gain skills that help them make decisions, solve problems, think creatively, and work with a team. It also motivates them to learn and helps improve their academic performance. Art helps children visually express their perceptions and feelings; and, improves their mood, calms them down and helps give them focus.
We are excited to announce the 3rd Annual #HTXMentalHealth Children’s Art Contest. The contest is open to children 5-14 years old now through April 1, 2017. The contest theme is, “How I Feel About Myself.” Children should live in the Greater Houston, Texas Gulf Coast region which encompasses Harris, Fort Bend, Montgomery, Brazoria, Galveston, Liberty, Waller, Chambers, and Austin Counties. Winners are awarded more than $300 in prizes and honored at a reception and ceremony at a location TBD.
